A prospective collaboration between Coke and the Canadian cannabinoid company could save the public's seemingly stalled interest in the century-old soda slinger's more sugary soft drinks, notes Canadian financial channel BNN Bloomberg. "The space is quickly evolving". The investment follows a deal past year in which Constellation acquired a almost 10 per cent stake in Canopy and the two companies agreed to collaborate on the development of cannabis-based drinks.
The source added, "It's going to be more of the "recovery drink" category".
